The return of Not My Cat

I swear it's Not My Cat!

Not My Cat has been spending a lot of time on my patio lately. Not My Cat likes to lay in the sun and sleep, but Not My Cat usually wakes up and runs away whenever I notice that it is around. Friday, Not My Cat was lounging on the bench while I ate lunch. Instead of running away, Not My Cat dozed lazily, keeping one eye on me and one eye on my tater tots. When I finished lunch, Not My Cat was still there, so I went upstairs to get my camera. I crept along the floor behind my sofa, stealthily approaching the window hoping that Not My Cat wouldn't run away too quickly. Not only did Not My Cat not run away, but Not My Cat posed for a few pictures before slowly rousing and slinking away. I was prone on the floor, mostly concealed by the sofa propping myself and my camera up on my elbows like a real-life nature photographer on the Serengeti. Not My Cat clearly saw me and humored me for a few minutes, but the implication was obvious, that were I actually a real-life nature photographer on the Serengeti and were Not My Cat a lion I wouldn't be here to blog about it. Thus today's lesson, courtesy of Not My Cat, is that I need to work on my stealth-photography skills.

And perhaps not to smell of tater tots when approaching from upwind.

Theic- A tater tot is a french fry (chip) made of shredded potato bits (plus additives and preservatives, yummo!) pressed into a bite-sized cylindrical shape.

I want that kitty! More accurately, my dog wants it. Does Not My Cat like Rottweilers?

I tried to get a picture of the woodpecker this morning. Not to be. It landed, saw me, took off. Three times. So annoying that it saw me.

I love Not My Cat. So cute.
